There are lots of little additions that I’m liking about OmniFocus 2. As an example, from the change log:

View menu, including option to show a project’s enclosing folder in the outline, to provide a hint of hierarchy.

Here’s an example of how this can be helpful: I have a number of projects titled “Overview” which are essentially administration type projects that oversee the rest of the projects sitting in a folder.  Something like:

  • Big Project
    • Overview
    • Folder A
      • Project 1
      • Project 2

One of the issues has been that in Review mode, I would have to guess which “Overview” folder I was reviewing. It wasn’t a big deal, but it was something. In any case, this feature totally helps out. To turn it on,

  • Go to review mode (Command-6) by default.
  • Select the view icon (or type Shift-Command-v)
  • Select the option “Show Folders in the Outline”:

Show Folders Now we can have a better view of the hierarchy:
